Holi is one festival that is celebrated with much gusto in Bollywood, year after year, and sees the industry’s who’s who rubbing shoulders with each other and enjoying the festival of colours. The stars also make it a point to wish their fans. And it wasn’t any different this year, except for the fact that instead of rubbing shoulders, tweeting was much more in evidence!
Amitabh Bachchan, always quick on the Twitter, wrote, “Holi greetings to all. May the colors of the festive season infiltrate your life and make it even better.” And son, Abhishek, followed it up with his tweet, “May all the negativity in your lives be burnt away by this Holika fire. Happy Holi.” Singer Lata Mangeshkar, who has also taken to tweeting, wished her fans and families a happy Holi.
Bipasha Basu seized the opportunity to wish and caution her fans. She said, “Enjoy the festivities today but also be very careful. Colors are not safe and the practice of throwing balloons on strangers is not fun. I have seen people and children ruthlessly attacking elderly people and animals with balloons which hurt pretty bad. How can it be fun...I don’t understand.” Similar sentiments were echoed by actors Mugdha Godse and Minisha Lamba on Twitter.
Filmmaker Shekhar Kapur had a message for all, when he tweeted, “Happy Holi to everyone. But would Holi be same without water? We may not have a choice soon, so save water.”
Other Holi wishers were Arshad Warsi, Kunal Kapoor, Lara Dutta, Neil Nitin Mukesh, R Madhavan, Shilpa Shetty, Uday Chopra, Urmila Matondkar, Zayed Khan, and a few others.
Kareena Kapoor was given the title of Bollywood's most sexy woman by a film magazine but the interesting thing is that even after this title, Kareena was not in pleasure. In a ceremony last week by the TV journalists, when asked Kareena about the Sexy title, how she feels after getting the title, she then shot back. Kapoor said "I must admit I am glamorous, but seems a little strange to hear sexy.
Kareena was then also asked by the TV journalist that who according to her was the most attractive man in Bollywood. But the question didn't worry Kareena at all and she replied with a smile - "Saif Ali Khan .... and who else!" But Kareena soon realized that this response will make other actors enraged, so she cleverly clarified that Aamir Khan and Ajay Devgan are also very attractive.
This is to be remembered that Kareena worked with Amir in 3 Idiots and with Ajay in Golmaal 3. About Amir, she says "I am a big fan of his. Working with him in 3 Idiots was a great experience and I am so lucky to have worked in that movie."
When asked "For Tashan, you went into being a zero figure. Would you do the same for some next movie?", she replied "Now, I don't have the courage to attain zero figure. According to me, Saari is the most sexy outfit ever."
The relationship between Kareena Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor never benefited Shahid, but Kareena has turned a complete vegetarian. Recently, she gave a proof of it too. Currently, she is doing a movie of director Shakun Batra "Short Term Shaadi".
In the movie, she is playing the role of a hair stylist. In a latest shot scene, she refused to eat eggs at all. According to the scene, she had to eat food in a restaurant with Imran Khan in a cafe in America. For the scene, the director wanted her to eat eggs but she refused saying that she doesn't eat non-vegetarian food and hence will not do the shot.
For this problem of her's, Bebo had to argue and fight down Shakun Batra which resulted in the acceptance on the director's part. She completed the shot after many re-takes and she was given fifteen eggless pancakes for the same shot.
After the day's shooting, she said "I don't have non-vegetarian food in my meals now. I left it around six years back. I talked about this to Shakun and he accepted my proposal of letting me eat eggless pancakes. If it was the demand of the scene also, I would not have eaten the eggs. That's why, I like to discuss this problem of mine with the directors before taking up any movie."
Bollywood Dabangg, Salman Khan also fears something now. This fearless personality on screen has now started to fear something. What is it?? The secret is out now!! It is on screen stunts. Salman has accepted that nowadays he is afraid if any director tell him that he has to jump off a cliff or something similarly dangerous. He is afraid of possible bone breakages. He says "These stunts are very dangerous and risky. If due to any flaw in the planning, I get my bones in pieces, it will be very difficult for me to pass 3-4 months in hospital".
Dabangg Khan had recently shot for a new advertisement of the famous cold drink company "Mountain Dew" in which he had to jump freely from a height of 3000 metres. This advertisement clip is out now and can be easily spotted on the television. But, for Sallu, the shot was not easy to give. He had to wear special Wing Coat for the shooting and also he had to take some training beforehand. A special trainer was hired from New Zealand to give him this pre-shoot training.
Dabangg Khan, personally likes the stunt scenes given by Deepika Padukone and he also is a big fan of the stunts of Hollywood actor, Charles Cruize.
Now, you people have to decide- "Darr Ke Aage Dabangg Hai??" or "Dabangg Ke Aage Darr hai??".
Aamir Khan is loved by everyone in the film industry. He has brought much respect to the country with the help of his films. But, who knew that this boy born on March 14th, 1965, will be so popular in India and abroad. Yes, his birthday is on March 14th and hence, we have opened up some of his up, close and personal in front of you. In his personal life, he was a very shy guy though on the silver screen, he romances beautiful actresses. Earlier, he kept distances from the girls. But, one day, Mr. Perfectionist saw his love when he was twenty years of age. A girl, named Reena Dutta was the one, who later on became the first wife of this actor. She used to live in front of Aamir's house. To woo her, Aamir had sung "Mere Saamne Waali Khidki Me Ek Chaand Ka Tukda Rehta Hai".
Then keeping in mind the precious time, he finally proposed her amid much hesitation and fear of rejection. Reena took a long time before accepting him as a life partner.
Reena and Aamir married silently on April 18th, 1986. The wedding was very filmy because Aamir's family had refused to accept it as Reena was not a Muslim. Due to this, these two had to live apart for one and a half year even after the marriage. They kept it so silent that their families didn't know of their marriage for a long time. Time turned and Aamir got his first movie "Kayamat Se Kayamat Tak" and Reena continued her studies.
After roughly one and a half years, Aamir officially declared of his marriage. Many gossips followed as in the media, Aamir was always connected to Pooja Bhatt, the daughter of director Mahesh Bhatt.
After a while, though, differences created rifts and finally in 2002, Aamir filed divorce and they were seperated. Later Kiran Rao married Aamir after they met on the sets of "Lagaan"!!
Bollywood movie star, Ranbir Kapoor says that since, his sister Riddhima is a girl, she was always given preference over him. He also wants each and every family to be like his so that girls get that required attention and importance which his sister gets. According to him, women empowerment is also important in film industry and better work has to be done in the field.
Ranbir says "I salute my mother on this international women day, for giving us(Ranbir and Riddhima) the values and principles we have got. She was the one who taught us that there is no difference between a man and a woman. But, in my context, I do feel that Riddhima was favored much more than myself and I think that this must be the case in every family of the country." Ranbir Kapoor started his film career four years back with Saawariya, and then the movies like Wake Up Sid, Raajneeti and Rocket Singh, got him the respect in the industry.
According to him, "In our society, boys have always been liked more than girls in their families. I wish they start caring for the girl child more than the other ones." Ranbir has always liked the international women day as this is the day which makes every woman remember the challenges they are put to in this male dominant society.
"I agree to the proposal of celebrating women's day for the three hundred and sixty five days of the year but a special day is must because it will make us remember and take our minds to some of the problems faced by a girl in her normal life. Things are changing in the film industry as well, which is a good sign." he says. "Today, I can see girls living their lives the way they want to and they are free to choose their way of living. We all know that the actresses like Kajol and Madhuri are still popular and famous amongst directors even after marriages and kids, which is a praisable change. I favor women empowerment as according to me, it will be very good for the Indian society as a whole." he added.
